be washington's highest priority. it's my highest priority. i've got to say it's not always washington's highest priority. because rather than keeping focus on a growing economy that creates good middle class jobs, you know, we've seen a faction of republicans in congress suggest that maybe america shouldn't pay its bills that have already been run up, that we should shut down government if they can't shut down obama care. you know, that won't grow our economy. they won't help our middle class. we can't afford in washington the usual circus of distractions and political posturing. we can't afford that right now. what we need is to build on the corner stones of what it means to be middle class in america. focus on that. a good job with good wages. a good education, a home of your own, affordable health care, a secure retirement. bread and butter pocketbook issues that you care about every single day. that you're thinking about every single day. and we've got to create more pathways in the middle class for folks who are willing to work for it. that's what made america great. it's not just how many

with news from washington. peter? >> reporter: this morning, we heard senator rand paul layout a road map he thinks would represent the best of both worlds for republicans, a way to avoid a government shutdown and defund obama care. here is how it would work. first, the house would vote to repeal the affordable care act as they have dozens of times before. then the senate would likely vote to keep the law as is. a compromise could come from that stalemate between the chambers at a closed door house and senate conference meeting. >> use the leverage of controlling one-third of the government. we don't control all of the government, they control house of representatives, they should stand up, use that power to at the least make this lawless bad, delay it, do something we can to protect the american public from this law, or if we do nothing, we're saying to the president, hey, you get your way. >> reporter: but president obama sees things differently, used his weekly address to sharply criticize republicans that want to alter the affordable care act in any way. >> many are concerned with how ba
